More likely a head gasket or water pump failure.

Mine's not a real cup but it's a true Phase 3 with Zender kit:

Why don't we add VIN numbers to the registry, that way if someone is doing a replica or selling a fake, people will have a place to check

..........he was joking.

We've covered this before & no one is going to try & pass off a Cup-A-like (or even bother to make an exact replica) as the genuine article.

Some people are nervous enough giving reg' no's let alone chassis no's as well.

If anyone wants to check if a Cup's genuine just input the chassis number into Eper, or ask your friendly local Alfa dealer, & it will show if it's a Cup or not.

Let's just leave things as they are.

As I've said before Cup 131 does not belong to Angus at Rusper Alfa. The owner was a customer who had it featured in auto Italia magazine on Angus' recommendation.

Number 150 is now living in Kent with me
She's got the odd little niggle, nothing that can't be put right though, and the smile she puts on your face when you get behind the wheel is more than worth it!

Cup for sale

I see number 125 is up for sale on eBay
This car I think is probably the lowest mileage one left and also you would think also one of the best
It's up at just 5600 ( I am sure he has advertised it way higher than this over the last few months) which I think is an absolute giveaway.
This has just knocked a lot of money off all the cups if this is representative of current worth
